Ryan Giggs Takes On Director Of Football Role At Salford

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has returned to football nearly two years after stepping down as the manager of the Wales national team. The 50-year-old has been appointed as the new director of football at Salford, the League Two club he co-owns with former United teammates including David Beckham and Paul Scholes.

Giggs’ new role comes as part of several changes at Salford, with Nicky Butt stepping up to replace Gary Neville as CEO. Giggs will work alongside manager Karl Robinson to improve the team’s fortunes and avoid relegation to the National League. Salford is currently 20th in the league, just eight points above second-bottom Colchester, who have two games in hand.

This marks Giggs’ first job in football since he stepped down as Wales boss in June 2022. His tenure with Wales ended following charges of allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend, although the Crown Prosecution Service later abandoned the charges ahead of a planned retrial. Giggs has maintained his innocence throughout.
